MAN OF STEEL Visual Effects Supervisor On Reinventing Superman For Today's Audience
There's not a whole lot here really, but it is interesting to hear what the man in charge of visualizing the characters from Zack Snyder's upcoming reboot has to say about bringing something new to the table for a modern audience. He says we can expect to be taken into "new" but "comfortable" territory, and this take on Superman will be "different but in a very familiar way"..
In the following 2-minute snippet from a video interview with Man Of Steel visual effects supervisor Joe Letteri, he discusses the importance of "tapping into universal sensibilities when bringing Superman to a new generation of viewers.”..
In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Henry Cavill) is a young twenty-something journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond his imagination. Transported years ago to Earth from Krypton, a highly advanced, distant planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question 'Why am I here?' Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Diane Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Kevin Costner), Clark discovers having extraordinary abilities means making difficult decisions. When the world is in dire need of stability, an even greater threat emerges. Clark must become a Man of Steel, to protect the people he loves and shine as the world’s beacon of hope – Superman.
